2Kings 2-25, 2Chron36 No matter where we read, we see that over and over, God was gracious to send His messengers to the people so that they would know what He required. How did they respond? They mocked the messengers, despised his Word, and scoffed until the wrath of the Lord arose against His people until there was no remedy. There is a saying; learn from the past so you don’t have to repeat it.
How do we respond to the messengers God has sent? Are we gleaning one truth each day from our reading and then applying that to our life? Prov 3:5-6 tells us to trust in the Lord with all our heart, lean not on our own understanding, acknowledge God in all our ways, and He will make our paths straight.
How are we responding to the Word of God? We can only respond if we are “in the Word” daily. Are we reading to glean a truth to guide us today?
The Israelites refused and ended up in captivity. May we learn from them what not to do and what to do.
